Fancy a trip to picturesque South Australia? The South Australian government has announced a second round of ‘Great State’ tourism vouchers to the value of $150.
The first round of travel vouchers, launched in October, 2020, were available only to those who lived in SA. All the same, the scheme injected nearly $10 million into South Australia’s visitor economy.
Kicking off today from January 5, 2021, the second iteration of the Great State Voucher program will provide $100 vouchers for travellers to spend at participating CBD and North Adelaide stays, along with $50 to use at regional and suburban accommodation. And this time, it’s available to all Australians.
The South Australian Tourism Commission says the program is valued at more than $2 million, and will launch “just in time for the peak summer holiday period to further stimulate the state’s tourism sector when it needs it most”.
The vouchers are available from today, launching at 11am (ACDT), on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. It’s first-come, first-serve, so if you’re interested in experiencing the beauty and diversity of South Australia, then you’d better head over to the Great State Voucher page now to score yours.
If you’re lucky enough to nab one (well done!), you will have from January 7-31 to book stays with your voucher, with travel dates that span between January 7 to March 31, 2021. Saturday nights are excluded from vouchers, but that shouldn’t bother you too much, especially if you’re across our sneaky tricks for doubling your annual leave in 2021.
